I am looking for a way to install battery powered LED lights for my house, as here in my city we have programmed blackouts from our electric company quite often, even two times a week, so today i found some parts lying around and decided to give it a try.
I got the LED diode from a cheap flashlight, the battery holder from an old radio or car or something, and put it together.
I also added a strong rare earth magnet that i scavenged from an old hard drive to make it more useful.
What i dont like is that ugly big red switch, but that was the smallest one i could find here, so i will try to build a wooden one next time(kidding)
and the end result is quite impressive for a little LED,
This was just a test, in the future i will try to hide the screws, and don’t make unnecessary holes( that fourth one was to close to the switch) and make them prettier, and see if they sell.
